Rio Grande Vineyards And Winery Reviews & Ratings
We are somewhat wine connoisseurs and having experienced many other states that offers so many vineyards and tastings often – we are being constantly surprised and amazed of the Southwest’s many worthy, up-and-coming wineries, for day outings, day trips incredibly enjoyable, with tastings, tours or just relaxing. As you well know if you’re a wine lover, wine is very subjective and varies from one’s own palate and preference. Due to rather diverse variances in each experience, or try to compare one winery, vineyard, grape or wine to another, I have developed a method in scoring that will give both the occasional novice wine taster or the most sophisticated connoisseur a bearing on each establishment by visited, based on our single, or sometimes multiple visits to each location. My guidelines are: 1) beauty of location and its scenery [ Scored:3.0 ] ; 2) the establishment’s appearance and ambience [ Scored:4.0 ]; 3) the owner/operators’ attention to their customers and hospitality [ Scored:4.5 ]; 4) activities, events and/or meals/munchies/entertainment [ Scored:4.0 ]; 5) wine selection, quality, taste and varieties [ Scored:5.0 ]; and 6) heavily weighted on our taste [ Scored:4.5 ]; as well as 7) value, consistency and price of the product [ Scored:4.0 ]. None of the aforementioned are in any particular order of value. The scale being 1 the worst, 5 the best and recommended and our overall assessment by scores a 4.1! By the way, the views there are fantastic - you almost want to stay the day! Check it out.
The views are beautiful and the wine is great! However, the last time I went, the owner came out and yelled at my friends and me to be quiet. We were talking and laughing, nothing out of the norm. It was really strange. We left cash on the table and left quickly. I even called the winery prior to us going because I wanted to ensure they were open at that time. Whoever answered said very nicely to come out and that they would take care of us. I don’t think I’ll be going back anytime soon, sadly. It was one of my favorite places where I would take friends and family.
We had our wedding reception here and the owner went above and beyond! He gave us tips and tricks to help our wedding go so smooth, and everyone had a great time! Definitely recommend this beautiful venue to anyone else looking for unforgettably gorgeous experience.
This is a great place to come and just sit and relax on the back porch with a glass of wine! We even have beer for those who like micro brews. Remember we close at 5:30 pm and you can’t do a proper wine tasting in 30 minutes so if you come after 5 just get a glass and enjoy the patio. Kids and dog are welcome, however they cannot be left unattended. If you are coming to a wedding here note! “It is against the law to bring in out side alcohol”, this includes running a bar out of the trunk or pickup bed. You would think this would not be a problem, but there are those who choose to be themselfs and just not nice people!
Me and my wife both loved our experience at Rio Grande Winery. We were both very clueless about planning our wedding, but Gordon stepped in and helped us put off a fantastic event. Our friends and family had an amazing time. The venue is beautiful, surrounded by vineyards and hayfields, with an awesome view of the Oregon Mountains.
